Dental Implants

Implants so secure and natural-looking, they’re almost like real teeth! Natural-looking replacements can comfortably fill a gap where you’ve lost a tooth, take the place of multiple teeth that are damaged or diseased, or give you a whole new look with a brand-new smile.

Replacement teeth are very sturdy and long-lasting. Once they’re installed, they remain in place, and you care for them just like the rest of your natural teeth.

If you’re ready to consider this technology, Dr. Claiborne is ready to help you with the replacement of a single tooth, two or three teeth, or even a full set of upper and/or lower teeth.

  • Would you like to replace one or more missing teeth with something fixed in place?
  • Are you having problems eating, chewing, or speaking properly due to missing teeth?
  • Do you have a bridge that is loose?
  • Do your dentures move around when you chew?
  • Do you get frequent sore spots from your denture or need “paste” to hold it in?
  • Do you have a partial denture but never wear it?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions you may be a candidate for dental implants. There are almost no absolute contraindications for dental implants. Although certain conditions will put patients in a higher risk category (i.e. smoking, uncontrolled diabetes, autoimmune disorders, etc.)

Allison Pollard – 7 Implants

“My overall experience was a perfect 10 and then some. I have been spoiled by the best in the business. There is no reason for anyone to go anywhere else for dentistry. I had numerous cracked, broken or missing teeth and fillings. The overall result has improved my digestion as well as my smile!”

Michael Zimmermann – 3 Implants

“My overall care was excellent. My experience was very pleasant. Dr. Claiborne was very enthusiastic about helping me with my problems due to my missing teeth I wanted replaced. I suffered mouth trauma on many occasions due to missing teeth and being unable to chew properly. Getting dental implants was the best thing I have ever done for myself.”

Brenda Carwile – 6 Implants

“I love eating with my new teeth. I have a wonderful smile. My son saw me for the first time New Years with my teeth, he said ‘Mom, you look like you did when I was young.’ That made me feel good. “

Gilliam Cobbs – 3 Implants

“Very pleased- really can’t tell which ones are implants. I have three. My doctor/dentist must be a pro at the science, and he sure is patient friendly. My advice: If you have a problem they have the answer.”

Irene Cobbs – 3 Implants

“My dental implant experiences exceeded my expectations. Dr. Claiborne gives a thorough examination, x-rays etc, if needed then takes the time to explain what needs to be done, how he will proceed with the process, the length of time involved for the implants and he gives the patients the opportunity to ask questions.”
